Product Description

Review

* One of the finest cultural artifacts made in the 20th century. -- Russell T. Davies * ...as powerful a comic art-piece as anything out today...will delight Peanuts aficionados. Observer * Beautifully designed ... One of the high-water marks of post-war popular culture. Daily Telegraph * All sorts of important writers have marveled at the glorious simplicity of [Schulz's] draftsmanship and his unerring jokecraft, all underpinned by a quiet melancholy and stoicism ... by some miracle, the entire Peanuts oeuvre is gradually being republished in this country, by Canongate ... in lavishly appointed hardback ... Unlike almost everything you read as a child, they are actually better than you remember them. Spectator * ...these timely re-issues illustrate not only the skill and subtle brilliance of his work but also the origins of the form beyond simple merriment. The List * Canongate has had the brilliant wheeze of reprinting Charles Schultz's strip cartoon from the beginning in hardback volumes... Herald * The Complete Peanuts is beautifully bound, a comprehensive resource and, with an index and introduction, a useful contextualisation of a modern legend. The Skinny * ...in these first volumes (1950-54), we can already see what will appeal to 21st century readers. Sunday Times

One can't praise enough Fantagraphics Books for reprinting the complete collection of one of the most insightful, funny and loved strips of the past century. in this books we see Peanuts rapidly evolving towards its mature and golden years, with Lucy's first attempt to make Linus get rid of his blanket, Schroeder, Lucy and Beethoven's triangle in full gear, CB's misadventures with kites and baseball, and towards the end, Snoopy sleeping on his doghouse roof! A great piece in a splendid collection!

I LOVE these books! The books themselves are beautiful objects and the comic strips within them are hilarious, poignant and just perfectly realised. I think this sort of era of Peanuts is a bit of a 'golden age', so I'd definitely recommend this to anyone. It's life-affirmingly brilliant!

I have really enjoyed reading a few comic strips from this series each evening. I am surprised how revealing it is regarding the times written. I look forward to many more volumes.
